Shanghai - IFC

The twin towers of the IFC complex (国金中心) in Shanghai Pudong's Lujiazui Financial District. Left is 2IFC, the right tower is the new HSBC Tower (the former HSBC Tower is now occupied by the Hang Seng Bank).

 

The HSBC Tower was finished first. The lower parts are occupied by the IFC Mall - and the underground Apple store. The "IFC" name and the style of the letters are same as Hong Kong's IFC - because it's the same Hong Kong based investor.

 

In the central background the new Shanghai Center can be seen.

 

See where this picture was taken. [?] (Note: The Google satellite photos still show this place under construction - and the stone age old Yahoo satellite photos used by Flickr's maps still show the former "Lujiazui Food Corner" whose demolition to make room for the IFC was finished in 2004)
